Your estate is more than the money you’ve accumulated over time. Your estate includes your loved ones, your philanthropic interests, and your business endeavors.

For Purpose Law is a firm that represents individuals and families – with attorneys who understand your estate includes much more than just money. We have the understanding, knowledge, experience, and expertise to ensure your entire estate is protected and your philanthropy thrives.

Private Foundations & Private Operating Foundations

The process of founding a private foundation, or even a private operating foundation, is not for the faint of heart. However, starting your own foundation can ensure that your vision, your passion, and your financial contribution will continue to make an impact on the causes you believe in well into the future. A private foundation can truly establish your ongoing legacy.

Charitable Estate Planning

Many people mistakenly believe that charitable estate planning is just for the wealthy, or for those with big “estates,” but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Charitable estate planning is possible regardless of asset level, and FPLG’s Attorneys understand how best to structure your estate planning to protect your estate, provide for your family, and also support your charitable endeavors.


Surfing Heritage has had the pleasure of working with the good people at FPLG on a number of issues and wholeheartedly recommend them for your Nonprofit legal needs.

How simply great such a well trained attorney as May Harris can assist nonprofits with unparalleled skill and strategy. Not only is she thoughtful and articulate, but also adept at taking a relatively modest disaster and redirecting it positively. What luck that she's got unfathomable experience. Thank you, May Harris.
